Company History

The right hen for every house - the right egg for every market. LOHMANN GB continues to, achieve excellent breeding results and has become the UK leader in the supply of laying hens. 


Lohmann GB was formed in 2000 in order to market Lohmann laying birds in the UK and Republic of Ireland. The company was originally a partnership between Lohmann Tierzucht and Poultry First Limited in the UK. 

In January 2008, the Poultry First share of the company was purchased to form Lohmann GB. The company also bought the farming business of Poultry First so that it could have total responsibility for rearing and managing its own parent stock for hatching egg production. Lohmann GB continues to be an integrated company with strong links between sales and production. 

Lohmann Tierzucht, our partner, is the largest Layer Breeder Company in the world and has been successfully breeding layers for distribution worldwide since 1959. The company strategy is to breed layers to meet the specific needs of the market they are supplying. Lohmann Tierzucht provides total support to their global partners and subsidiaries and ensures that the highest standards of husbandry and bird welfare are adhered to. 

Lohmann GB currently supplies two breeds: 

Lohmann Brown Classic and Lohmann Brown Lite 

Lohmann GB supplies highly efficient layers of robust quality, producing high egg mass, outstanding shell quality and colour. All of these attributes contribute to our customer's goal of achieving the optimum level of production with an excellent return on investment. 

Lohmann GB Ltd pride themselves on providing the most efficient layer to the market and this is backed up with our UK team of Technical Managers who are there to provide assistance and guidance where needed. All Technical Managers are continually updated on the latest advances in management and breed changes to ensure they provide a 'second to none' service to our customers.
